“THE PSYCHOLOGY OF ARCHETYPES AND TAROT: Tools for the Process of Individuation"

Jung’s theory about the individuation of the Self is distinctive among psychodynamic schools in psychology.  Self describes the core of who we are as unique individuals and individuation is the process of realizing our deepest potential as human beings.

Tarot is a complete wisdom teaching that can guide the process of individuation through 78 archetypes known as the Major and Minor Arcana.  Study of the archetypes of Tarot provides an understanding of aspects of the human journey through life as well as an appreciation for their dynamic interaction.

We will discuss:

A brief History of Tarot told as a journey through the evolution of the Fool card over centuries. 

The structure of the Tarot deck: the Minor Arcana, also known as pip cards or suited cards, including the court cards or face cards, and the Major Arcana, also known as the Major Archetypes.

The significance of number and element in Tarot.

An overview of the path of individuation as revealed in the structure of the Tarot deck.

How the Major Arcana cards track an archetypal path of initiation or individuation, known in tarot as the Fool’s Journey.

Understanding synchronicity as the dynamic factor in readings with Tarot cards.

Interpretation of readings using tools similar to dreamwork.

Unlike other programs where participants often register onsite, it would be much more helpful for participants to mail in registration in advance so they can receive the program notes prior to the date of the program.

This workshop has extensive handouts which will only be sent to participants that register in advance with their email address.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own Tarot decks.
